Memorial trophy named in Lynda’s honour

TWO rival Kingaroy cricket teams will compete for a new trophy dedicated to the memory of Lynda Geiger.

Warriors president Jayson Naumann created the Lynda Geiger Trophy, which his side and RSL Services will contest.

Lynda's husband and RSL Services captain Darren Geiger said it gave the two teams purpose outside of regular competition matches.

"Warriors are out of the one-day finals but they can have a crack at this and they batted very well today," Geiger said.

Geiger said the family was "extremely honoured" to have trophy dedicated to Lynda.

"It's very flattering all the things that have gone on for her, that she had that impact. It's an absolute honour," he said.

"Lynda didn't have a lot to do with cricket because she worked every weekend but she always supported Adam and the boys."

Geiger said he hoped the two sides would contest the trophy for years to come.

"The Warriors have a lot of young blokes in their side who are going to be here for a while, we've got a few young blokes," he said.

in the inaugural Lynda Geiger Trophy match on Saturday, a partnership between batsman Brett Porter and Tony Dugdell helped Services secure a 28-run victory against their cross-town rivals.
